Congratulations to writer/director Matt Fisher and producer Aaron West for nailing 1st Place in the Audience Award voting for this month's FilmSlam, Enzian's monthly Sunday showcase for Florida-made indie shorts. Their UNDER THE RADAR, which tells of a man going to Dubai to build recreational submarines for their tourist industry (!), scored an impressive win over five other worthy offerings from Winter Park and Orlando. Matt and Aaron have now guaranteed themselves a spot in December's 19th annual Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase, where they'll have the opportunity to compete for a slot in April's Florida Film Festival Florida Sidebar - Emerging Filmmakers program.
Kudos also to Ted Juras for taking 2nd Place with HONORING THEIR SERVICE: THE WOUNDED WARRIORS, about injured soldiers transitioning back into their community, and Gregory G. Kurczynski's RISEN, a horror tale where a serial killer crosses paths with zombies, that claimed 3rd Place.
Remember to join filmmakers, friends, and fellow local indie film lovers for the next FilmSlam on Sunday, September 12, at 1:00 PM.
